Storyline

Care-free Charlie cons his widower brother-in-law Herb into an expenses-paid luxury cruise in search of rich, lonely ladies. The catch is that they are required to be dance hosts! With a tyrannical cruise director, and the luscious Liz and lovely Vivian, our heroes have lots of mis-adventures before they finally return to port. Written by Derek Picken <dpicken@email.msn.com>

Goofs

Vivian is led to believe that Herb is a doctor, but when she finds out he isn't, she's upset that he lied to her. He explains later that it was Charlie that lied to her, but that isn't correct either. Charlie lied to the flight attendant and Vivian just happened to overhear it. See more »

Quotes

Liz LaBreche: My husband was in the oil business with my dad. If daddy trusted him, I figured I could trust him, too.
Charlie: So, what happened?
Liz LaBreche: Well, as it turned out, there were a lot of test wells he was drillin' on the side.
Charlie: Should've had him neutered.
Liz LaBreche: Oh, I did, ha ha. Except I used an attorney instead of a doctor.

User Reviews

 
Decent enough comedy
10 September 2001 | by helpless_dancerSee all my reviews

I got a few laughs out of this one, more than a lot of other so called comedies. The big ship was a knockout and getting to see a lot of it's scenery was fun: as was getting to see some of Dyan Cannon's curves. This wasn't the height of Lemmon's and Mattheau's career, but it wasn't a total dog as some suggest.
